Cheers for that .... You should! - If you can get the weather right (and that's the hard bit) it is biking heaven. We have quite a few friends who ride up every year to come out with us.

More from the ride on Sunday ... Dalmally road continued ...

I could listen to a Scottish woman chew my ass all day long just because I love the accent. Nothing finer.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks ... 'The Goddess Sarah'.. Lol! - I will tell her that ..and she will be well chuffed .... although I don't want her getting a 'big headed'.... I am sure there will be plenty more pics of her in the thread.
'Oban' - We are planning on heading there this Sunday ...

Just for you (to improve the thread) - The 'Goddess Sarah' at Loch Lomond last Friday ..


Back to the riding ..


Onto the A85 Dalmally to Tyndrum .... another awesome road ...snaking it's way through great scenery...

That's very kind of you :) Unfortunatly I've still to pass, I have my module 2 on Thursday, and if I pass, I'll be heading up north for an all day ride! Maybe Fort William or Port Patrick :) I've got my 18 year old CBR 600 waiting! Can't wait.

Funnily enough ... we had the hottest weather in the whole UK on Sunday ... but no, - that's quite unusual !

More from the run ....

I have never seen so many bikes up at the Green Welly (Tyndrum) the weather had brought everyone out to play ...


Including my first sight of a BMW S1000RR on the road ...looks even better in 'real life' ...that swingarm is a thing of beauty ! :-






Unfortunately we discovered a stone had gone through the radiator on Graeme's 999s...

Btw ... after a couple of attempts Graeme's radiator was fixed with Radweld and Liquid Metal ...

On the move ..



Unfortunately on the way back we found the A85 shut due to a bad accident ...




Down at the front we discovered that a bike (BMW GS1200) had hit a car 'head on' whilst overtaking a lorry ... the rider had just been airlifted off to hospital ..








My trusty 'wasp' waiting ...

More from the 'closed' A85 on Sunday ...





Got to love those twin rear facing fans on the Benelli ...



When the road finally re-opened all the bikes got away first ... so for miles to come it was just bikes on the road ....
